A sure sign that Christmas time is coming to Ireland is when the Roses are in bloom – not the flowers, but the chocolates. We usually start to see signs of these in supermarkets in about mid-October, tucked not so discreetly in behind the Halloween displays in anticipation of the big reveal. It would be a grave mistake to purchase them at this time though, as they will surely be devoured within days. Still, we can always buy more.
Irish gifts have a whole lot of love behind them – they’re lovingly crafted, full of symbols of love and cherished by lovers of Ireland both at home and abroad.
